direct part in new un sanctions. this is in the wake of new north korean threats against the united states. cnn pentagon correspondent looked into how dangerous the nuclear capability really is. what are you hearing there sf. >> the rhetoric out of pyongyang is very hot. the question you raise is the one the administration has to take a look at. how real and dangerous is the nuclear threat? >> north korea's latest saber rattles threatening the south just one day after pyongyang said they will have missiles and conduct a new nuclear test leaving now doubt kim jung un is not giving up his father's nuclear program. >> they have the capability to conduct the tests in a way that make it very difficult to determine whether or not they are doing. >> there signs they are ready to test if ordered. >> they are maintaining fairly high state of readiness at the test site. if the order is given from pyongyang to go ahead, they can probably conduct the test in a few weeks. >> satellite shows a tunnel entrance where the device may undergo final assembly, a bunker for personnel and equipment and a
from a few more. >> here he is -- he was at the time? >> deputy attorney general of the united states. >> it was clear he was not going to carry out that order. he turned to me and said, what are you going to do? i told him -- i do not think it is close. what he is asking and apparently subsequently needed to do was fundamentally wrong. he said, you do not have any choice if you refuse to do it -- that means they will find somebody else to do it. if bork had not done it, anybody in the department could have done it. your responsibility was fairly clear -- i do not think he resigned lightly. you do have an obligation. there are lines over which you cannot cross. you have to -- sometimes you will not do. >> this is really important. i did my best to interview as many surviving players in the saturday night -- your audience may not now what do you here is talking about, but president nixon wanted to fire the special prosecutor archibald cox. he ordered the attorney general of the united states to do it and he would not. the next person in line was ruckleshaus, and he would not do it. ell
abouted day which the united states will no longer be a superpower but so-called first among equals. they project the date is somewhere around 2030. your thoughts and reckoning on the date and whether or not you agree with that, if you will, not decline, ascension of other powers? >> right. i certainly think that since the financial crisis back in 2007 and 2008, there has been a tendency to write us down, if you will. you think many of those assessments have been unduly pessimistic. i think even down right wrong at times. we're still the most powerful economy in the world. there is still have most powerful military. demographic i canly we're quite a healthy nation. we are the third most populous nation in the world and we will be even out to 2050. so the notion that somehow we're going to be eclipsed from the scene, i think is completely wrong. there is some truth to the statement that the economic and demographic center of gravity in the world is shifting towards asia. but it is shifting towards asia away from europe if you will. and not away from the united states. and i think tha
of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some circumstantial evidence. look at the fiscal cliff vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you're finding there is john boehner willing to break what is called the hastert rule, which is that to pass measures with majority democrats when they really need to be passed. i have no illusions every bill is going to go down that way. and then with the debt ceiling, same thing. i do think there's some evidence that republicans are saying, you know, in part for public image reasons but maybe in part because of good economic reasons, we can't keep whacking away at the economy like this to please our base we ha. >> it's not about the two parties necessarily shifting their philosophical positions or moving together but more of a practical decision by the house leadership to recognize the limits on what they can accomplish with the ma
and has people scratching their heads. the united states of america, while everybody's patting themselves on the back, we just added 4 trillion more dollars to the national debt. >> on every one of your substantive points, you're right. this is a bad bill that made a bad situation worse. the only thing that's reassuring to the rest of the world was simply that it avoided going over the cliff. so all the substance, all the details are bad. you've got to ultimately deal with entitlements. this did nothing. you've got to deal with economic growth. this did nothing. the only thing it did was avoided sending the signal that we really are reckless and out of control. >> we are reckless. we are out of control. and mark halperin, this is what's so stunning to me. is you look at the things we have to take care of over the next 20 years. and we have to take care of it now, or else seniors suffer really disproportionately over the next decade. social security. medicare, medicaid, entitlements. nothing touched there. no, it was going to be touched. the president even said, he told david gregory, yeah
to the united states command given the limited capacity in some cases the limited political will of the countries in which these groups operate. the u.s. military intelligence and security assistance resources devoted to these threats adequately are appropriately balanced and what recommendations would you have for us? >> if you are focusing just on north africa, al qaeda is a brand name as much as an organization. people wake up, they form these jihadists groups. they then plan to be associated with somehow, affiliated with al qaeda to gain credibility with local people as well as beyond. i think that we have to take seriously all of these terrorist groups, whatever they call themselves. now, at the moment they don't necessarily have either the interest or the devotee to attack our homeland. but we have a lot of facilities. we have a lot of assets in north africa. we just saw americans killed and held hostage at a gas as a buddy because we do business all over that continent so we have to take a hard look at all of them and constantly be helping our military intelligence an
as we think about the economy of the united states coming and as you point out, the other developing countries around the world. one of the efforts of this administration has been to promote business advocacy abroad for domestic businesses at home. i led a trade mission to india about a year and a half ago with a number of businesses from new and church, and they talked about how important it was to have that support from the state officials in india as they were looking to try to establish those business relationships. can you talk about how you might continue that and continue that this is something you would be focused on an unwilling to continue to support? >> well, as i said in my opening, i think foreign policy is increasingly economic policy, and we have an undersecretary for economic affairs, economics, energy etc.. i think that the state department historical use to have a foreign commercial service back in 1979. it slipped away. i think the secretary had the time -- i think that is something we ought to be doing in a very significant way. obviously working with the treasury
